The Territory Labor Government’s vision for Middle Arm as a vibrant hub of cleaner energy, investments, and job creation is one step closer.
Tivan Limited and Larrakia Energy have entered an agreement to supply up to 30 MW of renewable energy from 2026 to support Tivan’s planned Vanadium Electrolyte Facility, the largest of its kind in Australia.
The partnership between Tivan Limited and Larrakia Energy is a major step towards the Northern Territory's goal of becoming a leader in low-emissions energy and critical minerals processing.
The Middle Arm Sustainable Development Precinct is poised to become a catalyst for clean energy innovation and economic growth, with these initiatives representing a major leap towards a more sustainable future.
Tivan's planned large-scale Vanadium Electrolyte Facility at Middle Arm aligns with the vision of creating a renewable value chain for long-duration energy storage in Northern Australia.
Larrakia Development Corporation, an Aboriginal organisation representing the Larrakia people, and Larrakia Energy, majority-owned by Larrakia Development Corporation, are pivotal partners in advancing sustainable development in the region.
Larrakia Energy's joint venture, along with Australian and international partners, for a 300 MW solar farm near Middle Arm demonstrates their dedication to providing renewable energy to the precinct.
